Step into the world of Venture Capital. Two entrepreneurs. One VC. One Term Sheet: DealMaker recreates an entire venture capital negotiation in real time. We’re partnering up with startup accelerator HighTechXL for this amazing event.
Deal-setting is probably one of the most nerve-racking things a startup founder will experience when building a company. Negotiating the future of your company can seem quite daunting, especially if you don’t know what to expect or how to prepare.
And it's particularly daunting if you're a female founder.
A recent headline from Entrepreneur magazine: "Out of $85 Billion in VC funding last year (2018), Only 2.2 percent went to female founders. And every year, women of color get less than 1 percent of total funding." So, this time we take you through the whole process and we feature an all-female cast: two tech entrepreneurs in different stages of development, one investor, one attorney and a moderator.
DealMaker has been a free event in the past, but this time, there is a €20 entrance fee. All proceeds go to Codam, a free, full-time programming college based in Amsterdam.
